    Linux Mint Wont Stay on the Main Hard Drive


    Ok so I posted this here because I think Linux Mint is based off of Debian, am I wrong? Anyhow I installed mint to a seperate partition next to windows on my computer. I had my external unplugged at the time... It was actually plugged in at my neighbors. They where watching a movie I had on it; anyhow I plugged it back in went to bed woke up and it took out its own partition on the external... WHY?!


    Please help me; thank you sooo much.

    Hello and Welcome,
    Can you be a little more descriptive, I'm having a hard time figuring out what your problem is.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    If External Disk was unplugged during Mint Installation, there is no way installer could create partitions in it. Linux doesn't do anything automagically. Could you post the output of sudo fdisk -l command here?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
